Artwork by Marty Zlotkin

Marty Zlotkin, a Bronx, New York native who has been involved in the visual arts since early childhood, studied art at the Art Students League, the High School of Music & Art, Queens College and the School of Visual Arts. Beginning his professional career as a painter with a strong art history education he took to constructing large scale steel sculpture as another means of expression. His current medium of exploration is through digital media and the manipulation of photographic images with the last few years concentrating on incorporating wet and dry media into his photo work. “This body of work is an evolved melding of my photo work and my love of painting as transformed compositional space, creating a more artful and unique dynamic with the intent of a greater visual experience,” explains Mr. Zlotkin. “My interest is of the dynamism of the expansion and compression of space as visual poetry.”  Along with being the featured artist for the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, he has enjoyed being a visiting artist at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania working with the college staff and senior studio art honors’ students and sharing his experience, passion and technical knowledge of art.  He is also an Associate Member of the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum (WAAM) located in mid-Hudson Valley region of New York.
